Personal Details

Alternate Names:

Mike Ellis

Did You Know?


Ellis, whose name is displayed so prominently in If ... (1968), may have inadvertently inspired the Monty Python episode "Michael Ellis" (originally written as a draft of what later became the film "Monty Python and the Holy Grail"). The British comedy team had clearly watched If ... its closing scenes are parodied in an earlier episode, entitled "School Prizes."
